Standards are meant to encourage interopability and increase 
competition, with a healthy amount of that competition coming from open 
source developers and small development shops.  Supporting patents in 
w3c standards will be very harmful to small companies like mine that are 
trying to scrape a living by leveraging standards to compete with the 
big boys.

Thanks,
